The Mandevilles @ The CNE – August 22, 2015

Welland, Ontario-based roots rockers The Mandevilles are one of my favourite bands to photograph. They played three sets over the course of 3+ hours at The Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) in Toronto on Saturday, August 22, and I was there to shoot it.

Pepper, Rebelution @ Echo Beach – July 26, 2015

I photographed reggae rock bands Pepper and Rebelution at Echo Beach on Sunday, July 26. Sublime with Rome was the headliner for this show, but I didn’t shoot them because of a ridiculous release form that basically said the band would own all my images, etc. Shot on assignment for Aesthetic Magazine Toronto. You can see the full set of pictures right here.

Honeymoon Suite @ The Phoenix – July 23, 2015

Iconic Canadian rock band Honeymoon Suite have been at it since the 1980s. Here they are at The Phoenix on Thursday, July 23. Having grown up in the 80s, it was a total nostalgia trip seeing them play live!

In The Valley Below @ The Garrison – July 22, 2015

American dream pop duo In The Valley Below (ITVB) performed at The Garrison on Wednesday, July 22. It was kind of a weird show in that ITVB was the only band on the bill. They played for 45 minutes and then they left. No encore. This was my second time photographing them. The first time was at The Danforth Music Hall on October 11, 2014. That resulted in one of my all-time favourite concert photos (see below). The Garrison is a much smaller venue, and the lighting is pretty terrible, so it was a bit of a different experience. Shot on assignment for Aesthetic Magazine Toronto. You can see the full set of photos right here.
